Can't wait to see Queen Beryl. In the early 90's anime adaption, I honest to God thought she was a parody of the Japanese Total Quality Management system...and her social critiques of Japanese society were so sharp. LOVED her.

Huzzah!

I've only watched the first season of Sailor Moon and a little bit of R (stupid alien filler arc) before I stopped watching. It'll be great to see the (hopefully) full story retold.

That means you missed the best season of Sailor Moon, Sailor Moon S and the best soldier, Sailor Pluto!
But I didn't think the doom tree arc was bad, it had awesome power ups for the inner senshi and it was nice that a story was wrapped up in 13 episodes.

Here's the official western logo:



The entire announcement in english, not much news except for a few names and the synopsis of the story, but it confirms a worldwide stream on Niconico Douga.

Doubtful that Toei being the cheapskates they are can maintain that animation quality

Re: Sailor Moon Crystal

My wife was a Sailor Moon fan from the beginning (we pretty much built our trip to Japan last year around the most recent Seramyu - she saw it twice with our daughter) and has been following absolutely everything about the new series. She's over the moon (sic) with this trailer. Hopefully the rest of the animation (especially the conspicuously absent henshin sequence) will meet or exceed what we see here - except maybe for Venus' legs in that last shot. Looks weird.

Mark <-- How about that Gundam Unicorn Finale, huh? Huh?

Saw it. The animation is pretty darned good. Though I will admit the transformation looks a little too... Vocaloid at times.

I watched it a few hours ago on nicovideo, it was good and very close to the manga but it doesn't have the visual appeal of the first anime, I miss that.

I rather like the new images, myself.

I paused my video on when Usagi shows her test to her mom. She was way off!! "Please _____ me Yumiko." Usagi's answer: super.

Re: Sailor Moon Crystal

I enjoyed the episode, but I was surprised by how much of a shot for shot remake it was of the first episode of the original anime. I was expecting a few more differences beyond Tuxedo Mask losing his ability to throw roses.

Re: Sailor Moon Crystal

There's only so much they can do with the intro episode anyway. The CG transformation is TERRIBLE though.

It's lovely in some places, but looks wrong in others...
